Bear vs. Shark

Biography

Detroit-area indie rock and roll quintet Keep vs. Shark just produced officially in 2001, but guitarist John Gaviglio, vocalist Marc Paffi, bassist Mike Muldoon, second guitarist Derek Kiesgen, and drummer Brandon Moss acquired known one another since junior senior high school. Inspired by crushing highs and soul-searching lows of ’90s emo and indie, Keep vs. Shark self-released a debut and gigged through the entire metro Detroit and Lansing region, even while waiting for the majority of its account to graduate from university. Once that hurdle was conquered, the music group signed with the brand new York indie Identical Eyesight, which released the ambitiously textured rock and roll of AT THIS TIME, You’re in the very best of Hands in July 2003. The album’s launch was accompanied by annually of weighty touring (with functions like Hopesfall, Hey Mercedes, and Coheed & Cambria), therefore heavy that Carry vs. Shark’s site recounted several tour vehicle mishaps. By Sept 2004 Carry vs. Shark had been back Michigan and producing plans for another album; Terrorhawk premiered in middle-2005. Unfortunately, the bandmembers announced their separation prior to the year’s end.
